Nordstrom anniversary sale wishlist, Nordstrom anniversary sale, Nordstrom anniversary sale must haves





Here are my must have picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ll explain later because I’m running late to work… haha!


This morning I had an unplanned early wake up that lead to a little too much extra time before work to peruse the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The next thing I knew I had 30 minutes to shower and leave so thank you for waiting it out for me to finish this post 🙂


My game plan for the sale was to shop online and pick up in-store, so I knew the items I wanted most were reserved for me in the store before I drove 30 minutes to my nearest Nordstrom. Normally, I got for new boots and a few little things here and there, but this year I wanted to focus on really good basics that I will get regular wear out of, like basic tops, a good pair of jeans, and comfy layers for work and the weekend.


#1: Halogen Long Open Front Cardigan | #2: BP Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan | #4: Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite® Circle Cardigan

I’m always cold at work year round, so I knew picking up a few different cardigans would be a good investment to my wardrobe and out of all the options  I ended up with these three. A must have for me this year is finally trying the Barefoot Dreams Circle Cardigan that always sells out while I contemplate the price tag, so this year there was was no hesitation other than deciding the color.

#3: Halogen Soft Ruffle Jacket

This isn’t a piece that I normally go for but I was intrigued by the design and color and wanted to reserve it to try on. I’ll let y’all know what I think of it when I get it.

#5 Halogen Button Back Ruffle Hem Dress

My current comfy LBP is in serious need of tossing and this one with the ruffle detail will be the perfect replacement! Drop ruffle details can be a hit or miss with my hips, so I hope it fits! I can picture so many different outfits around the dress, so I’m excited to style it.

#6 Madewell Catskills Jacket

I wasn’t expecting to get a new olive green coat because I have one but I’ve never been happy with how it fit on me, so I’m hoping this one is a more flattering cut and I wear it more because I think they are a fall staple.

#7: Emerson Rose Tie Cuff Blouse

I love the little bow tie sleeve detail on this otherwise boring plain white top (even though I can never have too many of boring white tops for work!).

#8: Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Robe

Another Barefoot Dreams item I regretted not picking up last year. It’s actually been in my cart ever since but I didn’t want to pay full price when I knew the sale price in the back of my head! I don’t neeeeeeed a new robe, but since I live in my $12 Tuesday Morning robe I thought I wanted to treat myself to this one.

#9 AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans

The holy grail AG jeans… These are always one of the first things to sell out, so this year I wanted to see what all the fuss is about with these! I would never pay full price for them, and even the sale price is a little hard to swallow, but I’ll let y’all know if they’re worth it after I get to try them on. I ordered two sizes to be safe since I’m not familiar with how they fit.

#10 Lush Raw Edge Side Slit Tee

Out of everything in my closet I get the most wear out of my basic tees, so I wanted to pick up a few of these to try at under $16. They look thicker than most I’ve seen, and I’m hoping that’s a good thing! They will work perfectly under all the jackets and cardigans I ordered.

I wasn’t very tempted in the beauty department because most of the options we’re large gift sets and unless I knew it was a product I already love I didn’t want to spend more to get more. I did purchase this set because I love the scent of the deodorant and it lasts me forever. I think I buy like 2 a year somehow, it’s crazy.

Anything I missed?? What’s your favorite from the sale?!
